Hi, I'm David,and today I'll be talking about the area of life that relates to everyday living.
You might need support with day-to-day activities, including cleaning, shopping, cooking and chores around your home.
These can be things like cleaning the house, maintaining the garden and taking care of your home.
You can find more information about these services on the Cleaning and household chores page.
When it comes to shopping, you might need support to get things like groceries online or from a grocery store.
You can find services in each State and Territory and more information on the Shopping page.
If you find it easier cooking your own meals, support is available to send someone to your home to help plan and prepare your meals.
Meals can also be made and delivered to you at home.
You can find more information about these services on the Meal delivery and preparation services page.
There may be assistance available to help you plan your everyday needs, assist in getting to the store and accompany you while you're shopping.
You can find more information about these types of services on the Shopping assistance page.
